There’s an old black man on the corner

singing for a dollar or a dime

You might think he’s crazy

You might think he’s lazy

You say he oughta get up off the street

 

Well maybe he just wants to be happy

maybe he just want to be free to sing

And maybe singing on this corner

is exactly where he's meant to be

 

There’s a boy who likes to dress in women’s clothing

And he likes pretty boys to keep him company

You might think it’s unnatural

You say he’s going straight to Hell

You say he oughta be what God intended

 

Well maybe he just wants to be happy

maybe he just wants to be free to love

And maybe what God intended

is exactly what you see

 

There’s someone who’s tired of the office day-to-day

She throws it all away to find tranquility

You might think she’s given up

You say she oughta suck it up

She oughta do what everyone else does (work 9 to 5)

 

Well maybe she just wants to be happy

maybe she just wants to be free to dream

And maybe this office cubicle

wasn’t where she was meant to be

 

I'm on my way... 

 

Maybe we just wanna be happy

Maybe we just wanna be free to live

Maybe we just wanna be.
